Time to move on...

July 26, 2015   |   filed in my life
have been a wedding photographer for a long time. It feels like a lifetime. And I have absolutely loved every minute of it. It is always such an honour to be there to capture the story of 2 people committing to each other surrounded by their loved ones.  
As much as I ABSOLUTELY LOVE it, it has come at the cost of a lot of missed family time, birthday parties, anniversaries and weekends. For a long time, that didn't feel like a sacrifice, but since moving to Perth and seemingly "starting again", that sacrifice has become more apparent. Add in the effort of running a business that requires so much forward planning and self -promotion (which is hard work for a humble-bee like me), plus doing it solo, and it soon feels like a lonely and tough way to make a living.  
So time for a plot twist. 2015 will be my last year of shooting weddings under my business name. I have a few more weddings booked for this season but will not be taking on any new ones for 2016 and moving forward. I still love photography and have no plans to sell all my gear, but it is time for a change of direction and to grab some more of my weekends back to spend precious time with my kids while they are still young and want to hang out with me. xx jk
